Pre-configure SSO login domains for Office 365 add-in Follow

Overview

With the Zoom Office 365 add-in, administrators can deploy the add-in, with the single sign-on (SSO) url preconfigured. With the url preconfigured, if a user is using the Add a Zoom Meeting or Settings options in the add-in, it will automatically use SSO to authenticate. 

Note: When using custom manifest files, the Add-in will not receive automatic updates, and must be updated with a new manifest file.
